Chris Moorman has first WSOP bracelet in his sights

The $10k No Limit Holdem Championship is down to just two players after officials called a stop to the action due to the 10-Level Rule, both with their eyes set on their first World Series of Poker bracelet and the biggest first-place prize of the 2011 WSOP thus far, a $1.1 million payday.

The two players who will be returning to the Rio on Thursday are chip-leader Joe Ebanks and online poker legend Chris “Moorman1” Moorman, who are the survivors of a very, very, tough final table that saw a slew of the games young stars battle it out.

Moorman, yet another young UK poker phenom, is in the conversation of “Best Online Tournament Player of All-Time” having won the PocketFives Triple Crown an astounding 11 times, and having won virtually every weekly guaranteed online poker tournament.

Just missing the final table was WSOP POY leader Ben Lamb who finished in 12th place, but in the process exceeded 500 points in the POY race –an important number since the winner of the WSOP Main Event will receive 500 points this year.

Here is a look at Moorman’s and Ebank’s chip counts heading into the heads-up battle:

* Joe Ebanks – 11,015,000

* Chris Moorman – 3,215,000

Here is a look at the final table payouts –which may go down as one of the best final tables of all time:

3. Bertrand Grospellier — $447,074

4. Tristan Wade — $292,866

5. Taylor Paur — $198,140

6. Mike Sowers — $138,301

7. Ben Tollerene — $99,493

8. Jeremy Menard — $99,493

9. Nick Grippo — $73,695
